My 51st Show
After taking the month off, and working up some new tunes, it looks like the boys were excited to play at HJK. Me and my friends love that room, and decided to take a few days off from college in LA to check out these shows. Touch of Grey opener was a great way to kick off the year. Stranger, Franklin’s, Rooster and Althea were also played well. We Can Run and Standing On The Moon make their debut. Nice to hear some new material. SOTM would eventually develop into something special. Second set kept the fun going. I really liked the Playin’ jam - long and exploratory. Miracle also had a fantastic jam at the end too (a la Truckin’) & in Morning Dew Jerry took 2 choruses during the middle solo - something I’d never seen before or since.

We can run...
I actually just checking out 2 newer tunes here.
We can Run- Nice, i like the harmonies.
Limitation:difficult play it anywhere but 1st set.
Standing on the Moon-Good, not to overly dramatic like it got in the final ballad spot.
Honorable mention-He's Gone post drums!
Not entirely well executed but outside the box.

Grate start to a grate year
I'm an absolute 89-90 fanatic. Love the midi. It can be argued that the post seventies peak was reached in the fall 89 - spring 90 shows, but I would expand that to this show until Deer Creek 90 (Tinley park run was sub-par IMO). The sound quality of this recording is incredible. Phil is loud and everyone else is very well balanced. Highlights: Stranger, Rooster (check out the rare jam within), and the entire second set.

Great sound quality on this one. Morning Dew IMO is outstanding . Jerry's solo reminds me of older versions in that it is slow but powerful and the intensity of it goes on a bit longer than usual before it tapers out.Brent plays some dramatic organ parts on it.
